“Urodynamics is the study of lower urinary tract function and how this relates to a patient’s urinary symptoms. The aim is to reproduce the patient’s lower urinary tract symptoms to provide a pathophysiological explanation and to guide treatment.”¹

Urodynamics evaluations are:

Uncomfortable

Urodynamics evaluation typically require a catheter in the bladder and another catheter in the rectum.  The bladder is drained and artificially filled before the patient is asked to void.

%

Inaccurate

Catheter use and artificial filling of the bladder may confound results.  Conventional methods of urodynamics evaluation fail to replicate symptoms in up to 46% of patients.²

Inefficient

Equipment is expensive and costly to maintain.  Because the equipment takes up so much space, evaluations are performed in a procedure room.

Bright Uro is developing the most comfortable, accurate, and efficient tools to aid in diagnosis of lower urinary tract conditions.

Our goal is to make:

– Patients more comfortable

– Clinicians more confident

– Practices more efficient
